I remember it clearly because it hurt so much. Two years ago, when Jeff and I were in the middle of our infertility struggle, I made the mistake of logging on to Facebook on Halloween night.

October 31st is the one holiday of the year that EVERYONE posts adorable photos of their adorable kids. I had no photos to post, and I wanted to so badly. I may be the only person in the world that’s ever sobbed while looking at adorable kids in adorable costumes, but that’s exactly what I did. I promised myself I would avoid social media on Halloween until I had my own adorable photo to post…. Today is that day.

Ellie is now 6 months old. Sitting up on her own. And I happen to think she is the most adorable little strawberry I’ve ever seen. I’ve waited a long time to post this photo. I hope you guys love it as much as I do. -Kaylinn
